Reggie Walker, Dean of Students
Hi my name is Mr. Reggie Walker and I am a Christ-centered family man who loves God with my whole heart. I am a Augusta, Georgia native, raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I attended Lane College in Jackson, Tennessee where I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary studies. I have been an educator with 10 years plus of teaching experience and a former member of MMABSE (Metropolitan Milwaukee Alliance of Black School Educators). My passion and dedication to academic progress and being a high performing teacher in the classroom has lead to my promotion to Dean of Students at Hope Christian Schools: Caritas in 2020. I believe education is a vessel leading to greater opportunities for success in our daily lives. When I am not working I love to travel and see all of God’s beautiful creations! I love to spend quality time with my family and friends. My favorite scripture in my life is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." I pride myself in sharing my experiences with others to hopefully allow people to understand if God can bless me in my journey, God can certainly do it for you! My outlook on life is to always have a positive growth mindset because I know there is nothing too hard for God!
